DAILY MASS SCHEDULE
As we move through these troubling times during the Coronavirus outbreak, we are praying for all those who are suffering with the virus, all healthcare workers and anyone caring for sick or elderly people. We will continue to offer Masses and Confessions as regularly scheduled and adhere to the liturgical directives as they are sent to us by the Archdiocese of NY. The Shrine will remain open for personal prayer during our posted hours but all upcoming events, meetings and programs are suspended until further notice.
We will continue to do our best to meet your needs during this difficult time.
Carol Bezak, Shrine Director

IMportant Update from The National Shrine of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and the office of the Shrine Director
I know we have all experienced many hard times, each in our own way and carrying our own burdens! We have spent many hours praying during these past few months, especially for victims of Coronavirus, family and friends touched by hardship and job loss, children trying to cope with new learning experiences, those who have missed out on special occasions and moments of celebration and so many challenging times!
Here at The National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, we are thankful for all of your prayers and concern. Your prayers are heartfelt, and we appreciate your notes and phone calls. We also appreciate those who were financially able to send in a donation to support our ongoing efforts to evangelize and remain a constant presence to all via our website and Facebook efforts. To all those who sought a day of personal prayer in our outdoor meditation garden, or just sat in our parking lot to pray a rosary or send a psalm our way, we say “thank you” and know that our prayers are with you also!
Please note: The Shrine will be open for private prayer beginning Monday, June 1st from 9:00 - 3:00pm every day except Sunday. You are asked to remain socially distant and wear a face mask during your visit. Restroom access will not be available at this time. Saturday Confessions will not be held until further notice. Please call the Gift Store at 845-344-2226 for opening information. We will continue to update the Shrine and Gift Store schedule as new information becomes available. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
In the meantime, Let Nothing Disturb You!
